Implant crowns are priced slightly differently than a typical dental crown because they require a special part, called an implant abutment. An implant abutment connects the implant screw to an implant crown. Thus, if you are missing a tooth and had an implant screw placed into your jawbone, an implant abutment and an implant crown will be needed on top of the implant screw. When looking at the price of an implant crown, most dentists charge two separate fees: one for the implant abutment and one for the implant crown. The implant abutment will range from $500 to $900, while the implant crown will range from $900-$1700. A wide distribution of prices exists because dentists have varied levels of experience and use different implants. Some dentists are highly trained in implant and cosmetic dentistry. Some dentists only use the most researched and highest quality materials. Regardless, the cost of an implant crown and implant abutment add up to more than a crown on a natural tooth due to the prices of implant parts.
In my practice, we pride ourselves on only using the highest quality materials while still offering very reasonable fees to better serve the south Florida community. With digital x-rays and lasers, our office is equipped with only the most advanced technologies in the dental field. Also, we confidently believe that we use the best dental laboratory in the country.
A little about me and my experiences with dental crowns:
After graduating from Tufts Dental School, I completed a residency at Boston City Hospital. Following the residency, I worked in a practice near Boston while teaching at my dental school for a few years. My wife Joanne and I then decided to move to south Florida, where I have practiced for the past twenty-five years. Over this time, cosmetic dentistry has become my passion, especially making beautiful dental crowns. In the office, we make sure that every crown blends absolutely perfectly with our patients’ natural teeth. If the color of a dental crown is slightly off, we add a little color and bake the crown in our porcelain oven until it is the perfect shade. Also, we want every crown to look gorgeous and last as long as possible, so we only use the highest quality porcelain. If we are making a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, we only use high precious metal. In addition, to make every crown, we confidently believe that we use the best dental laboratory in the country.
